Representative Text

1 Blessings falling ‘round us like the summer show’rs,
Nature’s voices ringing thro’ the shady bow’rs,
Birds in tuneful measures singing glad and free,—
This is such a good world, and it just suits me.

Chorus:
It just suits me, it just suits me,
In ev’ry bud and blossom his love we see;
This world is good to live in, and sunny as can be;
Our heav’nly Father made it, and it just suits me.

2 Balmy breezes blowing where the streamlets glide,
Fragrant buds and blossoms in the grasses hide,
Rivers sweeping onward to the broad blue sea,—
This is such a good world, and it just suits me. [Chorus]

3 Mountain, hill and valley full of life and cheer,
Showing forth the mercies of our Father dear;
One of thankful praise my song shall ever be,—
This is such a good world, and it just suits me. [Chorus]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
